As previously reported in Broadband TV News, the broadcaster’s accounts were frozen last October, with the move described as final.
However, in a letter to RT republished by the broadcaster, the bank, which is part of The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), said: Thank you for your patience whilst this matter was reviewed. I can confirm that a decision has now been made to retain all of the accounts you hold with the bank. Whilst I believe the bank followed its process correctly, I am happy we have been able to agree a way forward after further discussions with you”.
Margarita Simonyan, RT’s editor-in-chief, commented: “Common sense has finally prevailed. Thank you all for your support”.
